4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Louise Jolly TOP 50 REVIEWER on June 5 2010
Format: Hardcover
This was a beautifully written memoir. I was sure it was going to be good as I'd also read Judy Fong Bates' first book titled: "Midnight at the Dragon Cafe".

In this memoir, Judy and her husband Michael travel to China where Judy wants to re-discover her Chinese roots and visit old family members. Upon her arrival there, she is surprised to meet relatives she never knew she had.

As a youngster she had come to Canada with her Mother and Father and sat in a small, cramped one-man laundry all day. Her father worked extremely long hours in the laundry he began in Acton, Ontario and had no time for a social life or time to play with Judy. Her mother and father fought constantly making her wonder why they ever married in the first place.

Part of her return back to China was to try and discover why her parents married and what exactly made them so unhappy. I don't want to spoil the story so I'll let you discover the rest on your own.

I hope she is planning on writing another book, her writing is absolutely beautiful!!

Excellent memoir Dec 6 2012
By Kathy Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Judy Fong Bates shares her experience growing up Canadian as the daughter of Chinese immigrants. Like most kids, she has little understanding of her parents' lives until as an adult she starts to uncover some facts about their history. Well written and insightful.
Fong Family April 27 2013

This is the second book I read by Judy Fong Bates. This one was more factual. My wife's family are Fong's and from Hoi Ping so I thought there may be a connection, but Judy's family was from an area south of my wife's family.
